• Sierra de La Cabrera PLEASE STAY, DON'T RUN AWAY (ESPECIALLY NOW)!!!

    Taken with my short-lived Samsung. It self-destructed 2 months after I bought it. The company said 'water damage' which wasn't true. But I got nowhere with them so I vowed to have nothing to do with Samsung ever again. Poor PR in my book!

  • HFF! Cornish hedge on the northern slopes of Carn Marth. PLEASE STAY, DON'T RUN AWAY!!!

    I know it's VERY early (I will be away for a couple of days) and also it's not exactly a fence, but it will have to do! Stone field borders are called hedges in Cornwall.

  • West Penwith. Cornwall, August 2015. PLEASE STAY, DON'T RUN AWAY!!!

  • Trereen Dinas (South), Cornish Granite. PLEASE STAY, DON'T RUN AWAY!!!

    Near Penberth Cove, Porthcurno and Logan Rock, West Penwith, Cornwall. It actually is a rock window but I couldn't get the whole frame in the shot without falling off the cliff edge behind me. ... And that I would not do, even for my art!! :o)

  • Sierra de La Cabrera and Spanish Lavender
